Not this year. What it does however, is reaffirms why I am playing my G400 LST. A product of consistency.

 

No doubt. Next time I have a chance I'll be hitting that!

...  OK, if you hit a 3 iron 235 then 98% of us don't care about your problems. In fact we hope your wedges cause a gapping issue!  🤣

I'm surprised the announcement of the results didn't crash the site. I also didn't expect Ping to take home the crown considering all the buzz over the SIM and Mavrik. Guess that goes to show that you

Donated $9 to MGS just for giggles.   Not sure another 18 yards is possible with a stock shaft, and for the Mizuno to show “stiff shaft” with a 115 mph swing speed seems unlikely, but would be fun to

Anyone have any plans to make a purchase based on the results released today?

 

... I would think waiting for the different swing speed performances would be a good idea for most people's decision guide. Especially if you are on either end of the extremes.

Hard to believe the Sim Max D did so well. Lower spin that the Sim Max? Crazy. Guess I am glad I loved from the Sim to the Sim Max D. Two rounds in and I am very happy and this study makes me happier.

I’m interested to see what the high swing speed breakdown is. I was surprised to see that TM snuck in there when the overall most wanted went to the flash.

It really makes me want to find a good g400 on eBay since I can still use my tour shaft from the g30 to try out. Haha.

Used F9 prices are pretty tempting too.

Hmmmmm this quarantine could get expensive.

Any word on when the test results with the previous year's winners will be released?  I'm excited to see how the past winners stack up with the latest. 

Haven't even done the test.   They had to wait until the winner was selected and due to Coronavirus all testing has been shutdown.

How did the TS3 fare last year? I'm half drunk and not willing to do a search...lol.
According to the 2019 test it finished 8th in strokes gained and dropped to 16th this year under the new testing guidelines. Screenshot_20200323-214535_Firefox-01.jpeg

I apologize for not having a photo with the data, you have to be in landscape mode with a cell phone to see it and I wanted to show the entire list.

Well, I had the top dog in my bag for a bit, haha! Shout out to @yungkory for that one. Surprisingly poor showing for the SIM Max. I've been enjoying it, but I figured it would be in the top 5.

Must not go back to Ping.

Driver test was good as always.  Anyone do the TrueFit? I'd suggest to get your driver numbers first, then pay for it.

I'm surprised the Tommy Armour 845 didn't get the best value.  All of the hints Harry was dropping on the pod I thought that was a shoe in.  The data doesn't lie I guess but I am still surprised.  I didn't dive in too far to the data but was the gap significant?  Also, the most wanted and the best value are only $50 apart in price.  Does that make the Tour Edge a "pound for pound" king?

Seems like Mizuino should be #1 for you based off these numbers. I would be interested to know how the app comes up with the "best" fits.

IIRC the recommendation comes from the swing speed data. Shafts are always going to be stock options.

Idk, with Ping dropping their prices on the 410 line, while beating out this years' offerings, makes them pretttttttttttty attractive in terms of price:performance

The PXG 0811XF Gen 2 was too low launching, low spin for me, but it didn't make sense to me because it's the "forgiving" model. This data makes me feel better.

I have a question about the data and it may seem like a stupid one, but I have to make sure I'm reading this correctly.  The smaller the shot area number, the more accurate the driver right?
